New course will train key staff to handle Active Incidents and Terror Response with focus on saving lives.
West London based Code Blue Education are launching an innovative and much needed training course aimed at key staff at all public, commercial and educational premises to train them how to proactively respond in an active terror incident with the key focus of preserving life.
Code Blue Education specialises in medical training and has created the training course with advice from Homeland Security in the United States, with the support of the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Unit and security experts in the UK. Coupled with Code Blue’s experience in terrorist incidents, the training will provide attendees with the expertise to respond correctly during the active incident and to provide the critical medical support immediately required.
The course has been created by Chantelle Newman, director of Code Blue Education who attended several bombings and mass shootings in the 1990’s; Dr Richard Cullen – former Metropolitan Police Commander who devised a system of contingency planning and disaster management and was ground commander at many terrorist attacks such as the IRA mortar attacks on Heathrow Airport; and Adrian Heili a London 7/7 bombing survivor whose medical intervention saved lives at Edgware Tube Station. In 2008, Adrian was awarded the Stanhope Medal for Outstanding Bravery, the Silver Medal of the Royal Humane Society and in 2009 the Queen's Commendation for Bravery.
Commenting on the training, Chantelle Newman said ‘With terrorist attacks happening now at any place people gather, we feel this course will help prepare key members of staff to react in the best way to preserve life’. She added, ‘We all hope that we avoid these threats, but managers of premises must take action to train their team to be ready to deal with these incidents’.
The ‘Active Incident / Terror Response Training’ lasts one day and covers key areas such as workplace emergency procedures, where to run and hide, informing the police, emergency medical treatment and victim removal. All attendees are given a ‘survival kit’ that contains key medical equipment to help preserve lives. Training is provided at Code Blue’s West London training centre or at client’s place of work. Regional training days will also be arranged from November 2016.
The training is aimed at key staff at premises such as sports venues, educational facilities, shopping centres, hotels, hospitality venues, places of worship, airports and large commercial centres.
